Solution

Note:

This exercise has changed since this solution was written.

Two-fer or 2-fer is short for two for one. One for you and one for me.

Given a name, return a string with the message:

One for X, one for me.

Where X is the given name.

However, if the name is missing, return the string:

One for you, one for me.

Here are some examples:

Name String to return
Alice One for Alice, one for me.
Bob One for Bob, one for me.
One for you, one for me.
Zaphod One for Zaphod, one for me.

For installation and learning resources, refer to the exercism Racket page.

You can run the provided tests through DrRacket, or via the command line.

To run the test through DrRacket, simply open the test file and click the 'Run' button in the upper right.

To run the test from the command line, run the test from the exercise directory with the following command:

raco test two-fer-test.rkt

which will display the following:

raco test: (submod "two-fer-test.rkt" test)
2 success(es) 0 failure(s) 0 error(s) 2 test(s) run
0
2 tests passed
